Ivan's book is finally here, and there's a new character named Akuti Tejaswini Jyoti ghem Estif Arqua, or Tej for short. I don't think I even want to attempt that mouthful of a full name, but I need a mental-voice pronunciation for Tej, and I can't seem to come up with a satisfactory one.
My main problem is that tej is the Hungarian word for milk, pronounced /tey/ with e as in bet and y as in yellow. So while this is the pronunciation I keep trying to use, it just Doesn't WorkTM for the character in question. (Really. She is nothing like milk.)
There's an Indian name Tej (possibly short for Tejas) which is pronounced /tage/ (rhymes with page) - but it's a masculine name, not a feminine one.
Tejaswini itself is also Indian, and feminine, but the first syllable is pronounced with e as in bet, and tedge-rhymes-with-edge just doesn't sound good on its own.
Is there any Word of God on this subject? Failing that, does anyone have the audiobook?
